Of course, this is false, but let's assume there's a universe where the mainstream media remembers Biden's July 8th press conference the one where he said the Taliban wouldn't take over. Oh never mind. Let's assume a President who wasn't hell-bent on getting out by 9/11 for his photo-op, and recognized the lack of a plan was a serious problem.
The new spin is that, although there was no plan, gosh darn it they just had to stick that deadline. It's called leadership, people.
